The SNOM Board had their second formal meeting for the 2020-21 school year on Monday, October 19th . Jennifer Pena was welcomed as our new Treasurer, while Tara Cliff transitioned in August into the Vice President position. Thank you Pam Walcher and Mary Yackley for your service and leadership and enjoy your retirement!

Our communication with other state organizations throughout the country reinforces our appreciation for the Minnesota Department of Health and the leadership and guidance they provide to us as we navigate this pandemic. We will continue to hold member zoom meetings and update our COVID resource page, with both receiving hits from our membership. Thank you RuthEllen Luehr and Mary Jo Martin for your continued leadership and updates to our resource page.

NASN has uploaded a variety of resources in alignment with their strategic goals for our access. They are in continuous pursuit of practices and processes focused on diversity, equity and inclusion. Both NASN and SNOM are looking for members willing and able to share their expertise as leaders within our organizations.
